Wainwright's complete-game shutout gives Cards yet another win over the Nats

The Nationals will beat the Cardinals again, maybe even this year. It just may not seem like that after the Cardinals' 8-0 victory Thursday night. The win was the Cardinals' eighth straight over Washington stretching back to their incredible comeback in Game 5 of the 2012 NLDS. If one team really can "get in the heads" of another, the Nationals must be seeing little...

Why Stephen Strasburg’s Career Will Personify, “Waterworld”

"I've had a vision so great, as it came to me I wept."  Greetings! Tis I, Tehol Beddict, and last night I witnessed Stephen Strasburg grasping his ankles, shutting his eyelids, gritting his teeth, and receiving the kind of punishment I haven't seen or thought possible since Tupac verbally accosted the Notorious B.I.G. and his entire crew back in 95.

Video: Zach Walters on his pinch-hit home run

Zach Walters destroyed a baseball in the 8th inning Wednesday night, a pinch hit HR to give the Nats a 4-3 lead in an eventual 6-3 win over the Marlins. There he is above, talking to MASN's Dan Kolko after the game (screencap lifted from MASNSports.com video).

Gatorade makes Bryce Harper extra juicy

Gatorade Fierce is trying to position itself as the ultimate sports drink. Apparently that means commercials depicting Bryce Harper as one juicy, Gatorade-covered player. It also means baseballs which morph into Harper’s screaming face. The whole thing is … interesting. It’s actually pretty much the same ad we’ve seen for ages from Gatorade, but this time everyone is dripping...

Bryce Harper Smashes His Own Screaming Face In Uncomfortable New Gatorade Ad

Gatorade rolled out a new ad featuring Bryce Harper this morning, and it’s slightly strange. Not only do Bryce and the generic pitcher appear to have extremely serious cases of Hyperhidrosis, the baseballs used in this game are made of Harper’s face and don’t appear to hold up to Major League Baseball’s standards. Harper’s bomb does come off a Marlins pitcher, though, so...

Bryce Harper Crushes Homer Covered In Gatorade In New Commercial (Video)

Bryce Harper, Gatorade and Guns N’ Roses — what more does a commercial need? Harper, now a spokesman for Gatorade, made his first appearance in a commercial for the “Fierce” line of the sports drink and it’s certainly not boring. In the ad, Harper crushes a pitch from an anonymous Miami Marlins pitcher so hard that the leather tears off and transforms into Harper’s shouting...

Why Stephen Strasburg Will Be Just Fine ☆

Stephen Strasburg is perhaps the most heavily-watched, heavily-analyzed, and heavily-critiqued pitcher in Major League Baseball. From the time he was drafted first overall in 2009 at age 20, the hype surrounding the hard-throwing pitcher was massive, and it only continued to increase. The media interest in Strasburg peaked in 2012, during the infamous September shutdown as part of...

Marlins Light Up Strasburg and Stammen En Route to Blowout

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. Tonight’s game was a total clunker, as Stephen Strasburg allowed six runs in four innings and Craig Stammen allowed five more the next inning as the Washington Nationals (8-6) were blown out by the Miami Marlins (6-9), 11-2. Strasburg (L, 1-2) looked bad right from the starting gun. He allowed four hits and three runs in the first inning, as...

Bat-Flip Royale: Jayson Werth is your early leader for the 2014 belt

Santangelo), tripped...

Perhaps the appropriate thing to do when the Atlanta Braves face the Nats next is somehow require the Braves to wear Marlins hats.  As much as Atlanta has dominated Washington early on, the Nats have done the same to Miami.   After an awful weekend series sweep by the Braves, the Nationals climbed back aboard the winning bus with a 9-2 win last night over the Marlins.
